... hudiezhuang (or butterfly binding) from the end of the first millenium is the first Chinese binding style to feature separate leaves bound together at the spine, i.e. not attached linearly to each other (like scroll or concertina). This was achieved by folding a printed sheets of paper inwards and then attaching them together at the folded edge with paste, so that every second page spread was blank.
